A workplace’s “culture” means different things to different people. At Lingraphica, we work off the following description of culture:
Culture is the collective beliefs of a group and the behaviors they produce. A corporate culture is not always defined and can develop and change over time from the cumulative traits of the people the company hires. These shared values and beliefs largely shape how employees dress, act, and perform their jobs, and see their role in the organization. In short, our culture is our “operating system”—it is how and why we do what we do each day.
Additionally, our work environment consists mostly of shared offices with colleagues who are on the same organizational level (i.e., managers with managers, directors with directors, etc.). Collaboration, cooperation, and teamwork are encouraged. Our work attire is casual, as we believe that people are most productive when they are comfortable. We have a flexible work environment, ensuring that we are available to our coworkers during the day, and “pitch in” when needed, regardless of our levels or titles.
A major component of culture is a set of core values. As a company, Lingraphica has created and agreed upon the following as our Core Values. These are the tenets by which conduct ourselves each day.
